COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This International Strong Dark Ale was brewed with our friends from Belgium’s De Struise Brouwers and aged in bourbon barrels. De Struise’s deft hand in recipe creation has combined with Cigar City’s adroit barrel aging skills to create this monumental collaboration that is superlatively, unquestionably, and indisputably “Absolutely OK”.
